The African giants are on the lookout for a new head coach, after previous boss Kwesi Appiah left his position in September following a disappointing World Cup campaign.

Ghana failed to progress from an admittedly tough group that also included eventual winners Germany, USA and Portugal – even managing to hold the Germans to a creditable 2-2 draw before eventually missing out.

Michel Pont, Juan Ignacio Jimenez and Marco Tardelli are also in contention to replace the 54-year-old, with the team’s bosses reportedly keen on recruiting an experienced coach.

Former Chelsea, West Ham and Israel boss Grant certainly fits that description, having led Chelsea to the Champions League final during his brief spell at Stamford Bridge.

However, Kluivert’s distinguished playing career with the likes of the Netherlands and Barcelona may make up for his lack of managerial experience, while his time spent assisting Louis van Gaal with the Dutch national team puts him in good stead.
